All Around Great — This car is beautiful! It rides very smooth and is incredibly comfortable. The only reason I traded it in was because I felt it was a bit too big, but then again I am pretty small. Very spacious and elegant.

Pros: Smooth ride

Cons: Could be too spacious for some people

A Full Size Sedan That's Really A Full Size Race Car — an amazing car to drive every time you sit down in it. excellent handling in both city and highway situations. but truly, this car handles BETTER when you get it up to speed. it's at home between 90-110mph while getting excellent gas mileage (23+) at cruising speed. with every option except for rear camera, comfort is king and built in nav and Sirius make for easy trips, no matter how long. not for snow, ice, and would never treat to salt of any kind.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the ultimate driving machine...

Cons: cost to maintain goes with the cost of a new bmw.

Would Recomened It For A Elderly Man Or Woman — There is no leg room in the front seats, its a over priced luxury car that lacks horsepower and torque. The I drive system screen is deep inside of the front panel and is really hard to see. The steering wheel blcks the speedomeeter when your driving

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles nicely, its reliable, heated seats, heating steering wheel, and a sunroof

Cons: Has no horsepower or torque, the car is overpriced, the I drive system is too awkward, the feont seats are to small, the car has a awkward shape in the back,
